5/30/2016 Week 70 Chisinau, Moldova

What a change in pace this week has been. In such a great and positive way. After much worry and prayer over our investigators that seemed to be fading away, it seems like this week we have had a total comeback. Our investigators are starting to show a lot more progress this week, and we were extremely blessed to receive a new investigator named Alex. In every aspect, she is the "perfect" investigator. She expressed her desire to become a member, but that it will take some thought ponder and prayer. She is 18 years old, has such a strong testimony already of the Restoration and the Book of Mormon. She even expressed to us a dream that she had not long before she met the missionaries, a dream that portrayed exactly what happens in our Sunday Sacrament service. When she told us about the dream and the significance of it, we then proceeded to tell her that is exactly how our service is. She started tearing up and you could see her eyes filled with light and understanding. She immediately said she knew that it was not coincidence and that this is the path she wants to take. She has already bonded extremely well with the YSA here and absolutely loved church on Sunday. We are continuing with the lessons this week and will most likely set her baptismal date soon here. She is truly golden, one of those rare miracle investigators. We are beyond grateful!!! We have seen how true obedience and desire can cause these miraculous things to happen. :)
Also, today, we are doing a district fast with our investigator Christina, who is praying about baptism. We did a prayer over the phone with her last night to start the fast. We expressed the power and purpose of the fast, and she truly seems to understand that this is a serious step that God wants her to make, and that she is definitely ready to make! We have come such a long way with her. These two are especially progressing great. We have a lot of new contacts this week that came from streetboarding with the Book of Mormon. We are looking forward to getting some new investigators. Things are amazing here, couldn't be better actually. I think right now this is a definite high point of my mission. :)
This week we got a new addition to the companionship..... an AUSSIE! Yep, we are in a trio now. Our third companion is Sora Mits, from Melbourne, Australia. The three of us are a complete powerhouse together. I don't think I have ever seen a trio ever get a long so well before. The three of us all contribute characteristics and strengths that make our work force so strong. Our investigators love the unity we have. This is the most busy, successful, exciting and happy period of my mission, I think the other two would say the same thing! 
life is awesome. 

Have a great week everyone! I love you all so much. And I can't wait to see you in 7 weeks
